dc.description.abstract This policy brief provides background information regarding climate change variability and vulnerabilities particular to Namibia. It also contains a disaster risk reduction game and a seasonal forecasting game that can hone strategic thinking about livelihood decisions. Current coping strategies include actively moving livestock to cattle posts or areas where emergency grazing is available. However, these measures are no longer adequate for coping with the expected long-term impacts of climate change. Some recommendations are: forming co-operatives among groups of men and women farmers, or among women only; anticipate early warnings; change planting and harvesting times; use social networks for assistance. en
